Applied Micro Circuits Assigned Patent
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 27 -- Applied Micro Circuits, San Diego, has been assigned a patent (8,061,904) developed by Reid Greenberg, Mountain View, Calif., Igor Zhovnirovsky, Newton, Mass., and Subhash Roy, Lexington, Mass., for a "fiber optic connector microlens with self-aligning optical fiber cavity."The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A fiber optical connector microlens is provided with a self-aligning optical fiber cavity. The microlens includes a convex first lens surface and a second lens surface. A fiber alignment cavity is integrally formed with the second lens surface to accept an optical fiber core. A lens body is interposed between the first and second lens surfaces, having a cross-sectional area with a lens center axis, and the fiber alignment cavity is aligned with the lens center axis. In a first aspect, the fiber alignment cavity penetrates the lens second surface. In a second aspect, an integrally formed cradle with a cradle surface extends from the lens second surface, and a channel is formed in the cradle surface, with a center axis aligned with the lens center axis. The fiber alignment cavity includes a bridge covering a portion of the channel."
Cable & Wireless unit launches 250-Mbps FTTH service in Macau
CTM, a business unit of Cable & Wireless Communications, has launched a 250-Mbps residential service over its fiber to the home (FTTH) network in Macau, a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China.The new service supplants 100 Mbps as the top speed available over the FTTH network, which CTM launched in October 2010. The roll out has focused initially on the most densely populated areas of Macau. However, CTM said in 2010 that it plans to have FTTH available throughout Macau by 2015.Vandy Poon, CEO of CTM, said, “The people of Macau are very technologically sophisticated and so we are delighted to be able to deliver truly world-class broadband speeds. This is a great demonstration of the capability of our engineering team at CTM and our commitment to quality. This ultra high speed Internet connection will allow residents to access interactive services such as HDTV, video games, and communications services, to get the most out of their digital life.”
ACG: 3Q11 packet-optical transport sales down sequentially, up annually
Market research, analysis, and consulting firm ACG Research reports that worldwide sales of packet-optical transport systems dropped 16.1% sequentially in the third quarter of 2011 due to what the company described as “typical 3Q seasonality.” However, 3Q11 sales levels represented a 21% increase over the same quarter in 2011.The quarter was particularly kind to Cisco, which regained first place in packet-optical transport market share with 22.7% of the total. Fujitsu held down second place, while former Number 1 Tellabs dropped to third with a 16.1% market share. An overall look at the third-quarter performance of the market leaders can be seen in the table below. The packet-optical transport niche matched the general trend of the overall optical network equipment market, ACG reports. The total worldwide optical network hardware market slipped 9.3% sequentially but grew 5.4% year-over-year in the third quarter of the year, according to ACG."Despite weak economies and lackluster employment trends, financial investment firms are still investing in optical networking products, albeit at a slower rate this quarter,” commented Eve Griliches, managing partner at ACG. “Content providers are deploying 100G as planned, and in fairly high numbers. We are in a fairly different market now, which is changing faster than previous generations. Demand from content providers is growing and spending by top-tier providers is being constrained.”Despite a generally soft economy that has some carriers thinking twice about capex outlays, ACG says that some optical networking segments, such as OTN [Optical Transport Networ] architecture, are viewed favorably by carriers in general. However, since adoption of OTN standalone platforms can involve long selling and certification cycles, it may be a while before this interest transfers into actual sales.Meanwhile, ACG predicts that component supply constraints due to the flooding in Thailand will likely begin to appear in the current quarter and may extend into Q1 2012, “although not by significant percentages.”
